Fire Ant Alert For Northern Gold Coast

New Nests Found

Fire Ant Alert For Northern Gold Coast

Northern Gold Coast residents are being asked to check their yards for Fire Ants.

It's after a number of new nests have been found around Labrador, Hope Island and Helensvale.

The invasive pests have a nasty sting, and have the potential to affect our horticulture and agriculture industries.


Look for loose clumps or mounds of soil with no visible entry holes - if you see something suspicious, take a picture and send it to Biosecurity Queensland.
